Michal Strumnik, from Poland, won the OK Dinghy class at Kieler Woche from Denmark’s Thomas Gabs and Germany’s Sönke Behrens after three more races were sailed on Tuesday.
It has been a frustrating week in Kiel with light winds and long delays, but as usual those who made the effort enjoyed the atmosphere and the after-race beer and sandwiches in the boat park.
The action for the OK sailors now moves to Lyme Regis in the UK where the Ovington an Pro-Set Resins World Championship begins on Friday.
Hopefully they will fare better than the International Moths did at Weymouth recently – their World championship failing to reach the minimum number of races required.
